Comprehensive Counseling Program
The comprehensive counseling program at Woodcrest Elementary is designed to meet the social, emotional, and academic needs of the students. It is structured to meet those needs through individual, small group, and class sessions. The school slogan "Only My Best Always" is promoted and encouraged as a reminder to the Woodcrest students to accept nothing less than their best.Some of the topics addressed in our classroom guidance lessons include:
If you have any concerns you would like to discuss with me, please send me an email, call, or fill out the Parent Referral SurveyPlease note school counselors do not provide "therapy" or "traditional counseling". I can provide you a referral list for outside counseling services if your child is experiencing grief, divorce, family separation, severe anxiety, or mental health concerns.

1. Empower young people to understand their behavior and how it effects themselves and others.

Every month we send home a copy of the "Home and School Connection". This newsletter will allow you to stay connected to your student's educational journey. It provides practical tips to ensure parents are able to support their child during their time at school.
Due to the generosity of the Knights of Columbus, we are able to offer students the Backpack Buddy PRogram. We understand that not all of our students are able to have all their needs met some assistance and we are here for you. WIth our backpack program, we are able to discreetly provide children nonperishable food for the weekends. The food is sent home every Friday with students.If you feel you need assistance from our backpack program, please contact Mrs. Lang at (409) 724-2309.
We will focus on our character education program using the 6 pillars of good character- respect, responsibility, caring, fairness, trustworthiness, and citizenship. Each six weeks we will study a new character word. Our counseling classroom lessons focus on these good character traits, along with other associated words and examples. We want our student's to put these words into action! Each six weeks, student's will be awarded if they are caught being a kid of good character!
Notes from the Counselor
Meet your School Counselor:
Hi, my name is Chrissy Lang and I am the School Counselor at Woodcrest Elementary. I graduated from Texas A&M University in College Station with a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies; I hold Texas certification for General and Special Education. I also earned my Masters in School Counseling at Lamar University in Beaumont and hold Texas Certification for School Counseling in all grade levels. I am married to my high school sweetheart, Shawn, and we have four sweet girls. In my free time, I like to read, craft, and spend time with my family.
As a school counselor, my philosophy is to instill in my students a happy and healthy perspective of oneself and others. I hope to do this through whole group, small group, and individual group counseling sessions. I have always enjoyed helping young children reach their full potential and supporting their academic and emotional growth. If you should ever have any questions or concerns please reach out to me- I'm more than happy to help!
Have P. R. I. D. E.!
